@fastify/redis

CI NPM version js-standard-style

Fastify Redis connection plugin; with this you can share the same Redis connection in every part of your server.

Install

npm i @fastify/redis

Usage

Add it to your project with register and you are done!

Create a new Redis Client

Under the hood ioredis is used as client, the options that you pass to register will be passed to the Redis client.

const fastify = require('fastify')()

// create by specifying host
fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), { host: '127.0.0.1' })

// OR by specifying Redis URL
fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), { url: 'redis://127.0.0.1', /* other redis options */ })

// OR with more options
fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), { 
  host: '127.0.0.1', 
  password: '***',
  port: 6379, // Redis port
  family: 4   // 4 (IPv4) or 6 (IPv6)
})

Accessing the Redis Client

Once you have registered your plugin, you can access the Redis client via fastify.redis.

The client is automatically closed when the fastify instance is closed.

'use strict'

const Fastify = require('fastify')
const fastifyRedis = require('@fastify/redis')

const fastify = Fastify({ logger: true })

fastify.register(fastifyRedis, { 
  host: '127.0.0.1', 
  password: 'your strong password here',
  port: 6379, // Redis port
  family: 4   // 4 (IPv4) or 6 (IPv6)
})

fastify.get('/foo', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify
  redis.get(req.query.key, (err, val) => {
    reply.send(err || val)
  })
})

fastify.post('/foo', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify
  redis.set(req.body.key, req.body.value, (err) => {
    reply.send(err || { status: 'ok' })
  })
})

fastify.listen({ port: 3000 }, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

Using an existing Redis client

You may also supply an existing Redis client instance by passing an options object with the client property set to the instance. In this case, the client is not automatically closed when the Fastify instance is closed.

'use strict'

const fastify = require('fastify')()
const Redis = require('ioredis')

const client = new Redis({ host: 'localhost', port: 6379 })

fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), { client })

Note: by default, @fastify/redis will not automatically close the client connection when the Fastify server shuts down.

To automatically close the client connection, set clientClose to true.

fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), { client, closeClient: true })

Registering multiple Redis client instances

By using the namespace option you can register multiple Redis client instances.

'use strict'

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify
  .register(require('@fastify/redis'), {
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    port: 6380,
    namespace: 'hello'
  })
  .register(require('@fastify/redis'), {
    client: redis,
    namespace: 'world'
  })

// Here we will use the `hello` named instance
fastify.get('/hello', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify

  redis.hello.get(req.query.key, (err, val) => {
    reply.send(err || val)
  })
})

fastify.post('/hello', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify

  redis['hello'].set(req.body.key, req.body.value, (err) => {
    reply.send(err || { status: 'ok' })
  })
})

// Here we will use the `world` named instance
fastify.get('/world', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify

  redis['world'].get(req.query.key, (err, val) => {
    reply.send(err || val)
  })
})

fastify.post('/world', (req, reply) => {
  const { redis } = fastify

  redis.world.set(req.body.key, req.body.value, (err) => {
    reply.send(err || { status: 'ok' })
  })
})

fastify.listen({ port: 3000 }, function (err) {
  if (err) {
    fastify.log.error(err)
    process.exit(1)
  }
})

Redis streams (Redis 5.0 or greater is required)

@fastify/redis supports Redis streams out of the box.

'use strict'

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('@fastify/redis'), {
  host: '127.0.0.1',
  port: 6380
})

fastify.get('/streams', async (request, reply) => {
  // We write an event to the stream 'my awesome fastify stream name', setting 'key' to 'value'
  await fastify.redis.xadd(['my awesome fastify stream name', '*', 'hello', 'fastify is awesome'])

  // We read events from the beginning of the stream called 'my awesome fastify stream name'
  let redisStream = await fastify.redis.xread(['STREAMS', 'my awesome fastify stream name', 0])

  // We parse the results
  let response = []
  let events = redisStream[0][1]

  for (let i = 0; i < events.length; i++) {
    const e = events[i]
    response.push(`#LOG: id is ${e[0].toString()}`)

    // We log each key
    for (const key in e[1]) {
      response.push(e[1][key].toString())
    }
  }

  reply.status(200)
  return { output: response }
  // Will return something like this :
  // { "output": ["#LOG: id is 1559985742035-0", "hello", "fastify is awesome"] }
})

fastify.listen({ port: 3000 }, function (err) {
  if (err) {
    fastify.log.error(err)
    process.exit(1)
  }
})

NB you can find more information about Redis streams and the relevant commands here and here.

Redis connection error

Majority of errors are silent due to the ioredis silent error handling but during the plugin registration it will check that the connection with the redis instance is correctly estabilished. In this case you can receive an ERR_AVVIO_PLUGIN_TIMEOUT error if the connection can't be estabilished in the expected time frame or a dedicated error for an invalid connection.
